Abstract

SUMMARY is frequently encountered in specimens submitted to the clinical laboratory for bacteriological examination. This report describes morphological, physiological and serological attributes of this species. Photomicrographs show the presence of polar multitrichous flagella in stained preparations. These pseudomonads do not produce acid from glucose but readily produce acidity from maltose oxidation. A historical review of the epithet is presented.
